Brigham-Steiner brings with her 30 years of extensive development and nonprofit experience, which includes collaborating with individuals, businesses, foundations, government agencies, and nonprofit partners.

Brigham-Steiner came to MHS from her position at the United Way of Franklin County, Greenfield, Massachusetts, where she served as executive director, overseeing the operations as well as fundraising for the organization. Prior to that she was the senior director for impact & investment for the Monadnock United Way in Keene, where she provided leadership in the design, implementation and evaluation of strategic initiatives for donor/partner/corporate relationship management, grant research, proposal writing, and community relations. She was responsible for the complete oversight of and staff management for Monadnock Voices for Prevention prior to joining the United Way.

Before working in the Monadnock Region, Brigham-Steiner was one of five people who founded High 5 Adventure Learning Center in Brattleboro, Vermont where she researched, organized, drafted and delivered custom proposals, curriculum and grants for customers seeking services. She held several positions at Project Adventure, Inc. including the nation-wide Community Prevention/Development Director role.
